  • close the Renewables Obligation (RO) to new solar PV with capacity above 5 MW from 1 April 2015. Projects under 5 MW will remain eligible for the RO but projects over 5 MW will have to apply for Contracts for Difference (CfDs).
  • split the current ‘degression band’ for projects over 50 kW under the Feed-In Tariffs (FITs) scheme into two, with tariffs for building-mounted solar panels reducing at a slower rate than for ground-mounted solar panels.
